I think it is.  It's often a poorly thought out reaction either from people
are trying to defend their weight, or from people who are trying to make
folks who are heavier feel better.  It's the difference between a direct put
and putting someone down to make someone else feel better.  Both
are obnoxious, but the latter might be able to made to understand that that
reaction is hurtful.
